• About APDG

The Australian Production Design Guild was established in 2009 as a non-profit organisation that aims to:

  • Represent designers and their associates in screen, live performance, events and digital production across Australia.
  • Recognise and nurture excellence in design through awards, mentoring and accreditation.
  • Raise the profile of stage and screen design and facilitate a vibrant design community.

FULL members must be Australian residents or citizens working in stage or screen design. APDG accredited members are FULL members who have been granted accreditation by the APDG. Accredited members keep their accreditation status in retirement.

CONCESSION members are students, teachers and retired practitioners of stage and screen design who are Australian residents or citizens.

AFFILIATE members are individuals or businesses based anywhere in the world who are practitioners of, are interested in, or are affiliated with stage and screen design. AFFILIATES of the APDG cannot enter the APDG Awards, serve on APDG committees or apply for APDG accreditation but are encouraged to participate in the vibrant international community facilitated by the guild.
